What is KYBELLA®?
It is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat) also called *double chin*. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
Before starting treatment, we will evaluate your medical history and condition. We will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then we will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
KYBELLA® Treatment Procedure
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on your overall treatment plan.
The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. Contact your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
